Yatri Niwas

If you are in sinagar for a day or just transiting through, the yatri niwas is the big red brick building at lal chowk. you can't miss it. the rooms have private bathrooms and are decent given the quality of budget accommodation in the city. the place is run by a trust shree sanatan dharam pratap sabha so the staff seems indifferent and they charge a 'donation' of rs. 400 a.o. sept 2013 for which they will write you a receipt. ask if they have dormitories if you are looking for a cheaper option. centrally located 2.5 km from dal lake and good if you are looking for a hop-on & hop-off type of deal. the rooms facing the main street are noisy so ask for the ones at the back. phone: +919205431077 +919419006833

Gate opposite the Hotel Welcome

A well-kept houseboat and a nice family. If you get to gate 7, just ask any of the boat keepers for Yousuf Peer, they all know where his boat is. A "large" boat taxi there should cost 20 rupees. In the winter you can pay whatever you want for the houseboat since there is literally no business anywhere on the lake.

Young Bombay

A houseboat in the middle of the Dal Lake, in the Golden Lake part close to the Boulevard. Actually a complex of several boats of various classes, from deluxe to C, with varying classes. Spacious rooms with bathrooms, lake views, cable TV, internet, original Kashmiri cuisine and European food prepared by the owner's family. Advance reservations and airport or bus station pickups are available. Land line: 00 91 19 42 47 70 94

Srinagar is popular for its houseboats, which do not float free around the lake, but are anchored off-shore. It is a great and unique way to enjoy your stay in the city. Houseboats are accessible either by road, or by a short "Shikara" boat ride. Each houseboat usually has 2-5 bedrooms plus bath, dining room, living room, upper deck good for sunbathing.

Many travelers tell stories of bad experiences while staying on a houseboat, others enjoy their stay greatly. To avoid bad experiences do not pre-book a houseboat before arriving. With the security situation, the majority are empty and you should be able to get a better price in person, and to get a better feeling of if you'll like the place and the owners. Boats with land access have the advantage of allowing you to leave if you feel uncomfortable, or just like going for a walk, although they tend to be noisier if close to Dal Gate.

There are houseboats on Dal Lake and Nagin Lake. These can cost anything from Rs 1,000 March 2008 - Rs 5,000 depending upon the time of the year. Houseboats on Nagin lake are upscale and more expensive but are much more beautiful, and the Nagin lake location is serene. Price on Nageen Lake per person in Sept 2005 was Rs 500 per night including 2 meals. Expect to pay up to Rs 3,000 for a couple on the deluxe boats. Boats on the Jhelum river are cheaper yet, but still comfortable, and close to the bus station, good if you are just transiting Srinagar to or from Ladakh.

Be sure to take a 1 hour boat tour of the lake inlets to get a nice glimpse of life and wildlife along the lake. Prices are about Rs 300-500 per trip. A few areas are geared up for attracting tourists, but most much of the area is still reasonably untouched.

There are a wide range of hotels around Dal Lake. Prices vary from Rs 500-5,000.
